and invoice discounting
Why should I deal with you when I could go directly to the lenders?
Invoice financing can be an excellent way of keeping a healthy cash flow but accepting the wrong package could be costly. As independent invoice finance brokers we are not tied to any particular providers so we are free to use our many years of experience and extensive contacts list to look for the best company to help you.
In addition, since we provide the finance companies with bulk business we can negotiate good discounts in the majority of cases. This means that we can not only save you time and effort, but we can also probably get you better terms than you would have got if you had approached the lenders yourself. Oh, and we're fast, friendly and efficient too!
How long does it take?
We can usually arrange for a provider to talk to you the same day, or within 24 hours at the most.
Which areas do you cover?
We have contacts with invoice factoring and discounting companies with branches throughout Great Britain so there is likely to be one reasonably close to you. This isn't strictly necessary though since the business can often be arranged over the telephone and/or email.
Do I need to run a large company?
We have clients that range from small start-ups to major PLCs.
How much trading history do I need?
We can usually place clients at any stage from new start-ups to long established businesses.
What will you charge me?
Our service will cost you nothing (we receive a commission from the lenders, which doesn't affect the price you pay).
How does it work?

Can you arrange other types of business finance?
